Guide on Wedding Costs By Guest Blogger: Ella M.
With the average cost of a wedding around the developed world costing around $28,000, saving money while getting married in style is becoming more and more important. This guide helps couples planning their weddings to avoid getting caught out while also finding ways to save money.
When initially planning your wedding, you instantly think of the main components, such as the dress, venue and food. However, additional costs, like delivery charges and registration costs, are barely more than an afterthought. Although these aspects may seem minor and hardly worth mentioning in comparison to the high costs of many of the other parts of a wedding, these hidden charges mount up and now the average wedding can set you back a whole year’s salary.
To avoid having to spend an unaffordable amount of money on your special day, making a detailed list and working to a budget can be immensely helpful. Ensure you consider aspects, like thank you letters, and look at where you can save money. DIY wherever possible is a huge money saver; make the invitations, cake, wedding favours and watch the overall costs deplete.
Wedding packages are also another fantastic way of saving money on your wedding day. This relatively new method of organizing and affording your wedding is ideal for those on a tight budget, who don’t have the spare time to plan everything themselves and can’t afford a planner. Many packages include food, room hire, DJ and the reception and start at under £1000 – a fraction of the total cost of all the separate components. Book well in advance for the best prices and ensure travel for your guests is taken care of.
